We can say with confidence that Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh will return as Villanelle and Eve Polastri, respectively. Fiona Shaw will also be back as the famous Carolyn Martens. Other cast members who are likely to reprise their roles are Harriet Walter (Dasha), Gemma Whelan (Geraldine), Kim Bodnia (Konstantin), Danny Sapani (Jamie), Ayoola Smart (Audrey), and Camille Cottin (Hélène), among others. And although Sean Delaney’s onscreen character, Kenneth “Kenny” Stowton, is dead, we might see the actor essay the role once again if there are any flashback sequences.
Killing Eve Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
The beginning of the third season is a continuity of the second season’s final episode in which Villanelle leaves Eve to die in Rome. Eve is seen working in some south London restaurant, and Villanelle is about to get married. As the storyline continues, Carolyn returns to turn down Villanelle’s proposal of becoming an MI6 informant. Additionally, new characters like Jamie (Kenny’s boss), Geraldine (Carolyn’s daughter), and Dasha (Villanelle’s trainer) also find their place in the third season.
The finale of season 3 ends with Eve and Villanelle facing each other in agreement that neither of them should stay in touch with the other. As they walk away, they turn to see each other one last time. The fourth season will probably focus on Eve and Villanelle’s relationship. In August 2021, Comer dropped a hint that the final season will start on an exciting note. She said that Villanelle will be pushing boundaries, and the opening scene of the new season is going to bedazzle fans.
